Its main structure is a folded fan-like construction made from thin 200 gsm paper. The folds lend rigidity and detail to the table’s structure, forming a strong support for the strudy softwood tabletop.

This folding method allows for the table to hold a weight of up to 10kg.

The notches on the tabletop increase the surface area for gluing and attachment.

The simplicity of the construction allows for the table to be readily disassembled and recycled for other uses.
